Readathon 2021

This year we hope that the hearts and minds of our students will be expanded by the act of reading, particularly by encountering books from our Culturally Relevant Literature Project
Adults can honor their efforts by making donations to ensure funding for our core programs including Distance Learning support, Tk-5 Music for Minors, English Language Arts and Development (ELA/ELD), enhanced science curriculum and supplies, and much more

Help us reach our goal of raising $25 per student!

The first step to take is to go to 99Pledges, our fundraising platform, and activate your child's fundraising page.

Once that's done, you can share the link to your child's fundraising page with friends and family.

Read-Aloud Videos

Minute Tracker

The Readathon Minute Tracker is an optional component of our Readathon.

All reading time, whether independent or being read to or watching read-aloud books counts!

Top readers will be rewarded!


The top reader and top fundraiser from each of our 18 elementary schools will be invited to a special virtual reception in mid-February with local author Khalid White.

Each student will receive a signed copy of one of Dr. White's wonderful books!
